I completely agree with the proposal and all the points why it's needed.

"global by default", specifically defining variable as global by default
(and also no difference between declaring global variable and
reassignment of any variable), is one of the few ugly sides of Lua.
Solving this problem would make Lua much better language.

Usually stuff is the way it is for a reason. And complex problems don’t have simple solutions.

As I learned, reading back some previous answers by Roberto [1] on this matter, "global by default” is actually the more common pattern.
